MADISON — Governor Scott Walker has signed a bill that creates a pilot program to record crime and bullying in schools.

The bill calls the program to include one urban school district, one suburban district and one rural district for the 2016-17 school year.

Districts who wish to participate will have to apply to the state Department of Public Instruction.

The participating districts will maintain a record of all crimes, harassment and bullying that takes place on school property, on buses and other district transportation as well as at school events.

Walker signed the bill privately on Tuesday, March 1st.

    Are you kidding me?!?!? Why are we wasting tax payer money on this?? The liberals will see it as ‘opportunity’ to create another administrative position to monitor this, and yet another counselor or five to ‘help’ those impacted. Are we that much of a pansy society? Crimes should already be tracked by the Police, so this sounds like people with ‘hurt’ feelings. The only way I’m in favor of it, is if it’s followed up by allowing teacher/administrators to smack the crap out of disrespectful kids (with immunity) and track the improvement of behavior after said policy change. (Also, smack the loud mouth parents who defend their little degenerate.)
